Well, the fallout from last weeks El Clasico is still going on. Sergio Busquets was caught on camera saying to Marcelo 'mono, mono' which is spanish for monkey. Thats as low as you can go, but as with all things Barcelona I fully expect it will be swept under the carpet. They're the greatest side to ever live, remember...

It's hard to believe that Chelsea are back in contention again. It should make for an exciting end to the season though. I cant wait for Man U vs Chelsea!

It looks all over now. It's been a mad season for a lot of teams. I'm a EFC fan and i'm glad it's over.

Yeah. QPR it seems sill survive to promotion regardless of the debacle. I really do hope Cardiff win the playoffs; it'd be great to see a welsh team in the Premier!

The F.A. should shoulder some of the responsibility here.
I find it ridiculous that they don't independently screen transfers between member clubs affiliated to them.
If that was the case then they'd be able to give a simple yes, or no and that would be the end of the matter.
West Ham had to go through something very similar. You'd think they'd have learnt something following that fiasco!!!

A GENUINE well done to Man U for the title (it's a formality isn't it?). No fan can turn around and bemoan the title this year. It has been there for the taking this year but no team has grabbed the chance and the way Man U destroyed Schalke and Chelsea in recent games is to be applauded.

It has been a less than exciting league this year though but there has been some highlights. Gareth Bale is one hell of a player, Fernandez seems to be worth every penny of his transfer fee, Van Der Vaart was a snip at the price and Vidic is still a lucky so and so to stay on the pitch at times.

Let's hope that Houllier does decide to leave Villa. Health problems or not, it is a bad appointment.

You think it's been a less than exciting league this season? I think it's been great. Especially at the bottom. There's still loads to play for down there. Dont West Ham and Wigan still have to play each other too?

I think what Lee really meant to say should read a little more like this;

ABU (Anyone But United) to English translation:

"A GENUINE well done to Man U for the title (it's a formality isn't it?)."
It sticks in my throat that United look odds on to lift an historic 19th League title (with 2 games left there's still hope they'll fuck it up yet though)

"It has been there for the taking this year but no team has grabbed the chance and the way Man U destroyed Schalke and Chelsea in recent games is to be applauded."
Although I understand the race for the league title is a marathon and not a sprint, I can't help but feel desperately bitter that Chelsea managed to throw away a 10 point lead earlier on in the season and allow that red scum to reverse the situation. The games against Shalke and Chelsea are the only 2 games they've played well in all season and clearly don't deserve to be English champions (for a record 19th time) or play in their 3rd European Champions League final in 4 years.

"It has been a less than exciting league this year though but there has been some highlights."
F.A. Cup semi final: City 1 United 0

"Let's hope that Houllier does decide to leave Villa. Health problems or not, it is a bad appointment."
I wish we had Sir Alex Ferguson at Villa Park!

Yeah I'd love Sir Alex at goodison. It would be great if he swapped places with Moyes, won us 10 more titles to eclypse Liverpool. It's amazing that Utd only had 7 titles when he joined them! 2 less than Everton! .....If only he'd joined us.
